dreds of American volunteers
will leave for Israel on June

Rabin To Ease
Restrictions?

Jerusalem (JTA) — Defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin will
consider easing restrictions
on the Palestinian population
in the administered ter-
ritories, according to two
Knesset members.
Amnon Rubinstein and Yit-
zhak Artzi, members of the
new Center movement, said
Rabin's concessions would be
contingent on the continua-
tion of the present relative
calm in the territories. Accor-
ding to one report, they could

include a reform of the ad-
ministrative detention ap-
peals process.
Meanwhile, the head of the
civil administration in the
West Bank, Col. Rami Yadin,
handed over a check for
35,000 shekels ($22,000) to a
resident of Beita village, near
Nablus, as compensation for
the destruction of his home by
the Israel Defense Force in
April.
The IDF demolished 14
homes in Peita as .a punitive
measure against villagers
who took part in an April 6
confrontation with teen-age
Jewish hikers from the near-
by settlement of Eilon Moreh.
The man who received the
check was found to have had
no part in the incident, and
the payment was an admis-
sion of the IDF's error.

Kushner To Be
Less Technical

Alvin Kushner, former
Jewish Community Council
executive director, will be
guest speaker Saturday at the
2nd Symposium on Computer
Aided Engineering in Ann
Arbor.

Kushner will discuss com-
munity organizations. He was

Chinese Engineers Associa-
tion, the Free China Student
Association, the Ann Arbor
Computer Aided Engineering
Association, and the Univer-
sity of Michigan's Chinese
Student Union and Depart-
ment of Mechanical
Engineering and Applied
